Session: You are beyond defeat, get ready for your next phase now!
Mid-career professionals are often met with challenges when reentering the workforce. Employers view candidates with a career break as a high-risk proposition while individuals on a career break can have doubts about their abilities to relaunch their careers. The disconnect is a problem and can be solved through two career avenues for career reentry: direct hire route and returnship programs.
- Reframe your mindset
- Explore alternate recruiting programs
- Rebuild your technical knowledge
- Strategize to build a plan and execute
- Build a strong support system and leverage your network
